my name is Martin 8e3a7829_matze_riedand I grew up in a small town in the german alps, meaning I was pretty far away from any surfable coasts. I got into photography when I started skateboarding – and now, a couple of years later, my passion has only grown stronger. But ever since, I wouldn’t stop taking pictures of everything I could find. After I graduated from school I started traveling which got me into surfing and therefore transcended into surf photography. After I spent some time traveling  I started working for Puresurfcamps.  In 2013 I started to study Screen Based Media in Berlin specializing in Photography and Cinematography and graduates with Bachelor of Arts. I then moved back to Munich, still spending a lot of time on the road – that’s what I love to do!
